Day 2 at the record breaking PokerStars Eureka Prague Main Event was completed late last night with the 396 players that had advanced into Day 2, cut down to just 43 across ten levels of poker action.
Those players have all come through the bubble period and will now be aiming to make the final table when Day 3 gets underway around lunch time today.
Leading the field at the moment is British player Stephen Chidwick who racked up an impressive chip count of 1,479,000. He leads players in the top ten including Sergey Baranov and Mario Puccini. A little further back however are some notable names that have progressed including PokerStars Team Pros Mathias De Meulder and Marcin Horecki, Kevin MacPhee and Chris Moorman.
Made day 3 with 320k going into 8/16k blinds with 43 players remaining. Hoping for some run good tomorrow to run it up #gottabeinittowinit
